Full Tilt Ski Boots
Full Tilt ski boots are the original 3 piece ski boot shell design first available in the early 1980's and was known as the Raichle Flexon boot. Following Raichle's departure for ski boot manufacture, the design was brought back to life in 2005, when the company Full Tilt acquired the original moulds for these 3 piece ski boots from Raichle and then added a modern twist to them forming the new Full Tilt ski boot range.
Over 10 years later, Full Tilt continue to use the original 3 price ethos in their men’s and women’s ski boot range, but they have continued to innovate this trusted design to offer a range of 4 different shells, The FTO Original, The FTS Soul, The new FTE Evolution and the Adjustable Youth shell.
With over 80 Pro Athletes choosing and putting their faith and trust in Full Tilt, including Big Mountain, Freeride and Freestyle skiers such as Seth Morrison, Henrik Harlaut, Phil Casabon and Tom Wallisch have dominated their sport thanks to the smooth flexing ribbed tongue which produces a more natural linear flex that doesn’t bottom out and provides a smooth rebound. The tongue is the 1st and key part of the design which when coupled with the base clog of the shell and the rear cuff, there isn’t the need for thicker, heavy plastics or overlap design to achieve the same fit or feel. This design also incorporates the infinite pivot which means you have less shell distortion, no shin pain and the rear cuff will never bottom out or restrict the flex.
The Full Tilt FTO Original Shell as the name suggests is the original narrower fit and is precise, light and grounded in its design offering an intuitive feel on snow.
The FTS Soul shell design is a re-imagining of the original, with the added features of a broader, modern toe-box as well as replaceable rubber toe and heel pieces for extra traction and durability. Both the FTS Original and the FTS Soul shells allow you to tailor the flex of the boot by changing the flex rating of the Ribbed Tongue which can be purchased as an optional extra here.
The newer Descendant range uses the new FTE Evolution shell and it offers the same 3 piece shell construction with a wider overall fit and broader toe box, easy 3 position adjustable forward lean and rubber replaceable heels and toe grips.
The FT Adjustable shell is designed for the little rippers and allows adjustment through 3 full sizes of small junior foot sizes, so they won’t grow out of their favourite boots too quickly.
Other key features of Full Tilt are the Intuition liners that are ultra warm, very light and can be heat molded to offer a precise superior fit.
